Once you’re on the best energy tariff for your current needs, control is key if you’re to maximise your savings.

 

This can mean a few things where home energy is concerned, but a good place to start is getting to grips with your heating system by installing room thermostats, a programmer and thermostatic radiator valves. It’s not exactly exciting stuff, but when used properly, you can save money every year. It doesn’t need a change of boiler either. Getting the right controls enables you to set heating and hot water to turn on and off as you require them, heat only the parts of your home that need it, and at the right temperature.

 

Increase your control

 

You can take control up a level with smart technology. Smart heating controls are becoming increasingly available on the high street and online, and let you get a handle on home heating from your smart phone whether you’re at work, on the bus... or even at home. If you have the money for a bit of gadgetry that saves on bills over the long term, it’s worth researching these options.

 

Stop those draughts

 

After a bit of the shiny tech, get back to basics and stop those draughts.

It’s often a job put off, and it certainly couldn’t be classed as glamorous, but getting a professional draught-proofing job done on windows, doors and floors, plus installing a chimney draught excluder, can make a world of different to home comfort and save more than you would imagine.

 

And the small very simple things

 

And let’s not forget some of the classic small actions to take, which really can accumulate to a big impact.

 

Here goes: turn off the lights when you’re not using them, cutting roughly £14 a year of your expenses; use a bowl instead of running the tap when washing up and see around a £25 saving, and knock one minute off your shower time and make in the region of £19 in savings off energy and water bills. It all adds up to saving money!!
